So, what’s COVID-19 wanting to inform us?
No other virus, war, natural disaster or other similar adversity has was able to draw the COLLECTIVE attention in this powerful method for a very long time. The question just what we have to look closely at is complex (as there are numerous issues that we’ve been sweeping underneath the carpet). But isn’t it wonderful that we are forced to slow down, stay home, and (hopefully) reflect without distractions on what’s important, what’s valuable and what’s worth spending our life on. Needless to say, if we waste this valuable time on watching cute puppies and posting stupid videos on Facebook instead of paying attention to what really matters, we’re seriously missing the idea here.
We are in every connected (otherwise referred to as “A training in Oneness”)
If we ever needed proof that we are typical connected and that everything we touch (literally along with metaphorically) is attached to anything else, we now have it. Finally (and hopefully) a big realization is beginning to dawn on us: we can no longer continue steadily to “pee” in one single end of the pool (i.e. the Planet) and go swim in one other end convinced that our shit won’t catch up with us. All of us swim in the exact same pool and whatever we do in that pool does get back to us. Thus, taking “dirty” production out of Europe into China (and that is one of an incredible number of samples of separation) cannot and does not serve Europe (or some other continent for that matter). For the shit inevitably returns, COVID19 border entry test near me whilst the virus spread is illustrating clearly. Incidentally, isn’t it remarkable that a predicament that calls for social isolation (i.e. apparent separation) in fact intensifies the impression that we are typical connected, that we are typical in this (and every other thing) together!
It’s time for renewal
Old structures need to be torn down so we could start fresh (hopefully with new awareness albeit with little resources). On the face area of it, it is not accidental that the virus has to date targeted the life of primarily old people who have one, two or more pre-existing conditions, i.e. these are people which should have now been dead some time ago if it weren’t for the artificial means of extending life. However the artificial life-saving resources are now running out (no breathing machines, no medical personnel or other supplies). So which should make us rethink the life-saving technologies that so many people came to count on and have, consequently, relinquished personal health responsibilities. How about concentrating on disease prevention plans instead (when the pandemic is over): healthy eating, exercising, meditating, etc.? How many people could have heart disease and diabetes (the two top conditions that go hand-in-hand with coronavirus deaths), if there clearly was no processed foods or modern stress?
Get more comfortable with death by making every moment of life count
Death in and of itself is not really a tragedy. Rather, a wasted life is just a tragedy. Someone who has lived with integrity, has contributed meaningfully to themselves and to the society, and has maintained quality relationships throughout their whole life, has no regrets. This sort of person is able to die anytime, and happily. Become that person yourself. Re-evaluate your priorities and start spending time about what matters. Release the grudge. Begin to feel that you’re connected to all other human beings. Forgive. Feel more love and less resentment. Stop living a tragic life and your death won’t be tragic either. They could both be considered a celebration.
So these are some of the messages I do believe we have to hear right now. Needless to say, there are numerous other things to be used under consideration and far more is likely to be revealed to us in the course of this experience. That’s why we have to stay flexible, observe carefully (pay attention), ask smart questions and continue to find their answers deep within. In this manner we’re really taking advantage of the situation by cleaning up our personal baggage. Any behaviour (e.g. impatience, frustration, anger and looking forward to this blowing over so things can go back to “normal”) is immature. We truly need a shift in consciousness (to shift the virus) and if we resist it, the virus will persist.Business
